Apache Pizza And Domino's To Create New Jobs
Apache Pizza and Domino's will create new jobs.
As reported by The Irish Times, Apache Pizza is to create 500 new jobs across its 180 stores before Christmas and has organised a national recruitment roadshow to visit towns and universities over the coming weeks to fill the positions "as rapidly as possible".
The jobs reportedly include permanent, full-time and part-time positions for general managers, supervisors, team members and delivery drivers.
Those joining part-time will reportedly have the option to go full-time at a later stage. The group reportedly said that seasonal jobs are also available for the Christmas period outside of these 500 positions.
The company reportedly said that it will offer flexible working conditions, full training and "attractive opportunities" for career advancement.
The announcement of the new jobs follow the 300 roles that Apache created earlier this year when it announced the opening of 20 stores. Apache Pizza has reportedly served six million pizzas to customers in 2021 to date.
Apache Pizza chief operating officer Crispin McLoughlin reportedly said, "We are delighted to provide people with an immediate opportunity to secure local employment and to develop and advance their career with us as we continue to grow and expand across the island of Ireland."
The recruitment roadshow will reportedly visit stores in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Westmeath, Louth and Derry between now and December 7, and will reportedly provide an informal opportunity to meet the Apache Pizza business team including franchisees, managers and team members to ask questions and to learn about what it is like to work at the pizza chain.
Meanwhile, as reported by The Irish Independent, Domino's is to create 650 jobs across the island of Ireland including management positions, team members and delivery drivers in anticipation of its busiest period of the year.
The company is reportedly adding staff across its 86 stores in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Across the two markets, Domino’s reportedly already employs approximately 2,150 people on the island of Ireland.
Domino's Ireland CEO Scott Bush reportedly said that the jobs are being created ahead of the company’s busiest time of the year.
Bush reportedly said, "It is our busy time of the year, and we are ramping up into peak. There is that added demand, with the business itself looking positive."
Bush reportedly acknowledged that the latest recruitment drive follows an announcement in May that it would be adding 350 jobs. However, Bush reportedly said that those jobs have been filled, with Domino's "ready to go again".
Domino's reportedly recently opened a new store in Dublin's Liffey Valley, and Bush reportedly said that the company is committed to opening new stores across the island, with two more nearly ready.
Bush reportedly said that Domino's is unable to provide the number of new stores set to open for 2022. However, he reportedly added that it is working on 10 sites in the next 12 to 24 months.
Bush reportedly said, "We're not rushing this process, our priority is to continue to provide top service and quality food from each of our existing stores."
